I am a huge fan of Garnier lotion so jumped at the chance to try the new Garnier Clean+ Makeup Removing Cleanser for sensitive skin.
After a long day, I am lazy and will admit to occasionally not taking my makeup off, or doing a half-hearted attempt and waking up to raccoon eyes the next morning (never a good look) but I am not willing to give up the whole eye makeup look for my laziness either. The whole makeup remover, cleanser, toner, moisturizing routine is a lot of work when you are tired!
The Garnier Clean+ Makeup Removing Cleansing Lotion Claims:
In 1 use: Skin feels comfortable and conditioned and thoroughly cleansed.
After 1 week: Skin feels smoother and softer and looks healthier.
Dermatologist tested • Ophthalmologist tested • Allergy Tested • Suitable for sensitive skin
Garnier Clean+ Makeup Removing Cleansing Lotion has is a quick-break lotion that releases the powerful cleansing agents to dissolve impurities and waterproof mascara while plant extracts and Moringa seed stop your skin from drying out. This is not a normal makeup remover or cleanser. It seems like a fairly thick lotion and should be applied to dry skin (although I have used it in the shower and it still works great). You can remove it with cotton pads or water.
At first I thought that there was residue left on my skin after just using a cotton pad, but even after rinsing, my skin felt really soft.
As you can see, a lot of makeup wiped off with the first cotton pad I used to remove my makeup and a second pad was needed. I then used makeup remover to check I got it all, including my brown waterproof mascara – can someone tell me how that stuff needs to be scrubbed off usually but I can wake up with raccoon eyes? The pad came off clean which is more than I can say for the one used after my regular (non makeup removing cleanser) which makes my skin feel super clean but is no match for my waterproof mascara:
As you can see, the cleanser had removed a lot of makeup and is not as dirty as the ones used to remove Garnier Clean+ Makeup Removing Cleanser but certainly needs makeup remover used with it to get rid of all traces of makeup. I also used a 3-in-1 makeup removing/cleaning wipe and had about the same amount of makeup left.
After using it for almost a week, my skin is definitely softer and when I feel lazy, I can skip the whole toner/moisturizer routine and just rub this into my skin and wipe off. It is great for keeping at work for makeup touch-ups or fresh makeup after leaving without needing to splash water all over myself using those tiny sinks.
While my skin is not super sensitive, I had no issues with Garnier Clean+, it has no fragrance, alcohol or dyes and seems light on the skin, so if you do have issues with regular products, give it a try!
